Lived Beyond Expectations

GreaterHarpy | May 26, 2013 | Review of Metro: Last Light

I played through Metro 2033 41 times. I played through on Xbox and on PC on various difficulties with different strategies with different guns. It was my favorite game of all time even though I recognized it wasn't the best. Last Light was going to disappoint me, change something that made Metro 2033 such a charming and classic game. At least I told myself as much.

Instead Last Light manages to mix Metro 2033 with Half Life 2 and a touch of S.T.A.L.K.E.R to make a truly enjoyable, engaging, and lasting experience. It is atmospheric, beautifully designed, and contains some great music and sound design. 4A games is an under-dog Ukrainian studio that was forced to work with little cash to play with and under some very difficult conditions yet they managed to produce quite a little gem well worth your attention and love.

Some performance issues exist on SLI based systems as well as AMD but by the time you read this they may have been fixed.
